Hey, I've decided to sell my 02 WRX. Just went through the motor and replaced just about everything. I bought the car with a rod knock and rebuilt myself, I am a certified Subaru technician and have pics of the tear-down/put back together phase. See below. I've had the car for about 3 months, need something with a bit more space inside. Great car. Opensourced tuned by me at the moment, the tune is conservative as it's my daily driver. Car has 163,5xx mi on it.
I've driven it a little over 2k miles since rebuild.
Here's the photobucket library containing all the pics, a little over 100, showing the car, the tear-down of the motor and the rebuild of the motor.

Whiteline sway bars and solid swaybar links front and rear.
Rota wheels, some curb rash and all 4.
3"exhaust turbo back
DW 650 modded stock injectors
DW200 fuel pump
Prodrive muffler- very nice mellow but aggressive tone
manual boost controller paired with a Grimmspeed 3port in parallel configuration(there's a thread about it on nasioc- search "hybrid boost control")
modified blow-off valve(search .16 bov mod on nasioc)
Located in the Raleigh, NC area. PM for an appointment to see the car. Serious buyers only please. Clean title in hand. Mechanically the car needs nothing. The windshield is cracked, does not hinder line of sight or affect the wipers. The trunk lid has the wrong springs in it, so it feels heavy with the STI wing on it.
I have receipts for all the parts I didn't have already and all work on the parts not done by me.
